EDITORS’ NOTES

Many of Hollywood’s highest-grossing films have been gilded with James Horner’s soundtracks. The composer, who died in 2015, had a gift not just for dramatic pace, but also for melodies that live on long after the end credits have rolled. Here the finest moments from 13 of Horner’s best-loved film scores are treated to imaginative rearrangements, performed by some of classical music’s brightest stars. 2CELLOS give depth to the Celtic flavors of both Titanic and Braveheart, while saxophonist Amy Dickson soars in the Schumann-influenced theme from Willow. Pianist Alexis Ffrench’s sweeping arrangement of an extract from The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is intense and poignant.

Not a Definitive collection

It's called "The Classics", where are Glory and A Beautiful Mind? And instead Amazing Spider-Man is on it?

Glory

I wish that soundtrack was released. Such a powerful and productive piece of art.

Where is the music from Glory?

Where is anything from Glory? That soundtrack gave me chills and brought tears to my eyes. The fact that it’s missing from this compilation is unforgivable.
